The past decade has witnessed - especially among younger architects - a resurging interest in building with wood. The discourse has in no small measure been influenced by Konrad Wachmanns' classic Holzhausbau. And yet, this standard work (originally published in 1930) was out of print for many years. Now Holzhausbau is again available and appears here for the first time in an English language edition. Wachsmann demonstrates how new forms can be achieved when modern manufacturing processes are adapted to the traditional building material wood. He presents three totally different building techniques: the wood frame, the panel, and the log house methods and illustrates then their wide range of application possibilities by analysing plans and photographs of works of some of the century's most renowned architects. Two introductory essays enable the reader to take new hold of the book and a biographical sketch offers an impression of the times in which Wachsmann worked and lived.
